    • Dynamic ratchetting in hysteretic damping systems 

      Ahn, Il-Sang (2005)
      In the present study, dynamic ratchetting of hysteretic damping systems is investigated via numerical simulations and analytical approximations. Ratchetting in the field of material plasticity is defined as continuous ...
    • Open space damping system theory and experimental validation 

      Polat, Erkan (2016)
      Seismic energy dissipation systems are typically installed in buildings within diagonal or chevron bracing to improve the seismic performance by reducing drift, and under certain conditions by reducing acceleration. ...

    • Viscous Behavior of Exfoliated Graphite and its Cement-Matrix Composites 

      Chen, Po-Hsiu (2014)
      This dissertation addresses the viscoelastic behavior of graphite and graphite cement-matrix composites. The graphite is exfoliated graphite, with the cell wall in its cellular structure consisting of ∼60 graphite layers ...
